After two very ‘exploratory’ EP’s, Pennsylvania’s Summer Scouts have deservingly released their first debut full-length this past week. Furthest Reach, which was made available on iTunes and Spotify on May 20th, showcases the band’s power-pop genre but not without venturing into more emotional, layered tracks.
Their brand new song off the album is “Vessel” and has a much deeper backstory than the usual pop-rock tunes we are used to. Read what the band had to say about the sentimental track:
“Family life and norms change dramatically after the death of a parent. The home itself takes a drastic shift in its overall aura, a shift that slowly continues for years after the death, forever losing its original feeling. While the family’s personalities experience alterations as well, the house itself holds the significant, glaring symbolism of this dark familial change. “Vessel” visits this feeling that no one in the family wants to face and confronts it in an emotional conversation between the singer (an affected family member) and the house.
